The First Rule of Martial Arts

Silat07The first and most important rule of Martial Arts.

Rule 1) Survive.

Everything else is secondary.

…because if that first thing doesn’t happen, nothing else will either.

There are many great reasons to study martial arts.

  • Safety
  • Health
  • Peace of mind
  • Confidence
  • Longevity
  • Strength
  • Power
  • Friends
  • Fun
  • Stress Relief
  • Fitness

…and many more.

But short term survival is first.

  • You can survive several weeks without food.
  • You can survive several days without water.
  • You can survive a few minutes without air.

When a crazed maniac is swinging a machete at your head you only have a second…

…maybe less..

..to use your head and stay alive.

This is where we begin.
